Non-Immigrant Business (B) Visa
This is the visa type you need if you wish to establish
a business, be a director of a Thai registered company,
or apply for a work permit. The conditions for issuing and
renewing non-immigrant business visas are quite strict,
so providing the required documentation in a manner most
acceptable to the Immigration Bureau is important. We has a successful track record in processing non-immigrant
business visa applications on behalf of multinational corporations
and small business people alike.
Foreign nationals who are classed as dependent
on another foreign national who holds a non-immigrant visa
or Resident's Permit may apply for an 'O' Class Dependent's
Visa. The definition of dependency is immediate family members
- spouses, parents, and children.

Ninety Day Reporting
Foreign nationals who hold any
category of long term visa must either leave the country
after every ninety days, or report to the Immigration Bureau
every ninety days, depending on the visa category. Failure
to do so can result in fines and difficulty in renewing
the visa. New rules requiring the lodging of Tax Clearance
Certificates have further complicated the process. We can ensure that the reporting process is handled smoothly
so that you can have peace of mind that you are staying

Permit, which allows foreign nationals to remain in Thailand
permanently and provides similar rights and responsibilities
to Thai citizens, can be applied for if the foreign national

process is expensive and very complex and without professional
help, applicants are unlikely to succeed. We have extensive

an application is lodged. We are always happy to advise
